A riveting assembly of pieces carefully made from field recordings of wild, ruined and abandoned pianos - mostly found out in the wilds of Australia. Seriously microtonal, nicely paced, and carefully focused on every individual sound, this is a CD that asks for concentration, and over-all rewards it. An early requiem for the cultural hopes of the18th, 19th and early 20th centuries; new life snatched from the jaws of desuetude. May I suggest you play this quite loud; it will benefit: there is a lot of fine detail here that needs some power behind it. Occasional wildlife comes with the locations in which the source materials were recorded.
